The last outstanding piece of Duke’s 2013-14 roster was settled Monday, when Memphis transfer Tarik Black chose to take his services to Kansas next year instead of Duke and Oregon. Black’s choice was first reported by CBS Sports.
The Blue Devils’ coaching staff had recruited him hard—Mike Krzyzewski, Nate James and Steve Wojciechowski all visited him at home, and he came to Duke’s campus on May 13—but he went to Kansas the next day, the same day the Jayhawks landed No. 1 recruit Andrew Wiggins, and Black made his decision one week later (one person at Duke who did benefit from Black’s decision is Todd Zafirovski , who gets to remain on scholarship for his graduate year).
